dc.description.abstract The thesis is how resonating patterns of landscape and construction may link a building with its place, producing physically semantic architecture. Visual data understood by patterns offer an approach to relating buildings and landscapes. The potency of pattern resonance is its internal relationship with site and program; communicating fundamentally due to the a priori site experience. The site patterns communicate universally (human perception), not requiring previous knowledge (architectural histories or theories). Analysis of the key qualitative and quantitative orders/patterns of the site and the surrounding landscape document the salient patterns available for interpretive re-used in construction. Isolation of discrete patterns in landscape and interpretive reuse in construction attempts to build an integral order allowing "meaning(s)". An architectural summer retreat program is chosen not as a direct corollary to the idea but a test/control for the idea. The retreat suggests an-other method of viewing buildings and context.
